At Green Street, we devote our time to projects that create a lasting impact in and around St. Louis. Every project we work on is an opportunity to do something great in our city. We help business grow, neighborhoods improve and buildings perform for the future.
After purchasing the land long used by the railroad industry, Green Street looked to reinvent the area as a hub for transportation. With quick access to major highways, railways, and even barge shipping lanes, the underutilized location was primed for expansion.
After Green Street acquired the former Missouri Boiler facility, we saw an opportunity to bring up an location once overlooked for its industrial use. As the surrounding Lafayette Square and Gate District neighborhoods continued to grow and become more modern, this was the perfect chance to revitalize and reuse the area.
Before Green Street acquired the Green Park Broadway location, it was often vacant and the building’s aging design had made it nearly obsolete. We saw the potential and invested in revitalizing an area that had the potential to be a hub for businesses.
Inside a former Pillsbury bakery building in north St. Louis County, Green Street helped a local food production company consolidate their efforts and move their business forward. The existing food-grade facility simplified the process for Arcobasso and Nature’s Bakery to move in, and reduced the downtime before putting production into full swing.
At Green Street, building sustainably often goes beyond LEED certification, it’s about looking to the future. The Jefferson Commons area was once a Kroger grocery store, but then stood vacant for more than eight years. We brought new life to the area – and a new grocer to a federally recognized food desert.
The office we call home – along with a few other businesses – was once the Mini of St. Louis car dealership. Today, it’s a sustainably built multi-use building that’s designed around people, instead of automobiles. More pedestrian access opens up the entire building to make it more inviting.
Founding Principal Phil Hulse’s first major redevelopment project in the City of St. Louis brings new life to the former St. Louis Car Company location. Hall Street, in north St. Louis, is home to numerous businesses, but not many modern business parks. When the St. Louis Business Center project began, our goal was to not only update the building, but redefine the experience.
We helped a two-year-old startup brewery cement their place in the craft beer market with an innovative brewery and bierhall. As part of how we built sustainability into the design, green features also function as aesthetics.
One of the projects we’re currently working on at Green Street is the redevelopment of the former Carondelet Coke facility. Recently, it was one of the largest areas of vacant land in the City of St. Louis – and also one of the most heavily polluted.
At one of the busiest corners in the City of St. Louis, Market St. at Jefferson Ave., we’re working to revive and repurpose a building formerly used by Wells Fargo. While renovations are just beginning, we’ve already signed a long-term lease with Avatara, a web hosting and cloud service company in the tech industry.
We helped create a modern, multi-tenant business park out of what was once the Dorris Gear Company manufacturing plant. The Page Business Center project began as two companies looked to fully embrace corporate sustainability.
